Below, is the last letter I received from Yuki, just today. I asked her if I could share it. It's truly amazing how small our world is. We're not really that far apart! I actually "met" her from Etsy, and after back and forth visiting, it felt weird to say "goodbye forever". Like I've said, I hate goodbyes.
Here's her letter.
Dear my far away friend, Karen.
Since Sunday I've been feel bad, since I watch that terrible film on TV all day long, tears, headache, dizzy, nausea...and threw up..
But now feels good. I'm a little sensitive of sight more than common people... I was very shocked with that film.. And I am a crybaby..
My husband came back to Nagasaki, but he went to Kumamoto on business, and
yesterday he back to Tokyo again.
We're OK. I and Oniichan spend as usual. We have warm food and drinks,
warm bed and take a hot bath as usual.
Tsunami warning was released in Nagasaki.
I received e-mail from my friend lives in Iwaki Fukushima.
She is OK. But now she is under the evacation order waiting at home.
She stays in her home with her friend. Fortunately, they have preserved
foods and soft drinks but no water.
She said to me she is worring about radiation exposure..
I pray for her no radiation exposure.
I attacted and send the vintage greeting card with e-mail for her with our
The christmas card a boy holding a little lamb. I think that card maybe
make calm her spirit.
Yes, that cute animals cards are smiling for me, I can relax. They helps
me. I appriciate to artist's wonderful work.
I appriciate the rescue team with sniffer dogs camed from your country.I pray for the safety all of them.
I want to visit you with my friend Satomi. Satomi is the name of Fukushima

Your far away friend YUKI
